Looks like a Red Sprite.
This line -
Mr Craddick claims that it must be alien because "nothing human can fly that high"
tells me this guy is one of the "Man can't go into space" crowd and anything he sees is an alien.
This phenomenon we are looking at is actually a black sphere, with the colours seen during the apparent 'approach/ retreat' & thought initially to be a physical part of the object, being instead a shell of ionised gas surrounding the object, which flows around the object while it ascends - a movement wholly different than was previously speculated.

Why cut the feed if there is nothing to hide, that's what i don't get.

Strange... it looks like something rising up past the horizon, but they're in low earth orbit, the horizon is 2,000 miles away... that would make this object preposterously massive in size.
When did they cut the feed then?
